Remove Dark Spots : Pineapple

Updated on January 18, 2017

Remove Dark Spots : Pineapple

I live in a tropical country; hot and humid. The weather is “home” to exotic tropical fruits, many of which most of you living in cooler climate would not be familiar with. Take for examples, durian, mangosteen, rambutan, duku langsat, dragon fruit, chiku and nutmeg, just to name a few. But this one for sure you know, pineapple. What has pineapple got to do with "remove dark spots"? Fair question. Please read on.

Pineapple was not my kind of fruit before. I used to have bowel problem whenever I consumed pineapple. Then one day I decided to include a piece of pineapple in my fruit juice concoction. Two things I realized; it had a lot of juice and it tasted most delicious! It certainly made my fruit juices sweeter. To my surprise, I had no problem with my bowel! Pineapple became a regular member in my fruit juice combination.

Then one day while I was typing on my keyboard, I noticed a “pleasant” appearance in the skin texture of my lower arms. I couldn’t believe my eyes! The skin on my lower arms used to have dark blemishes, little dark spots scattered all over; a sign of ageing. Some call them "age spots". Actually, they didn’t really bother me. I took another look at my arms, and to my surprise the dark spots had disappeared!

I couldn’t find any answer to this new discovery. After some deep thinking, I think it’s the pineapple!

Not The Perfect Skin, But No More Dark Spots Or Age Spots. Remember, I Am Past 60.

Look At The Photos On The Right, No Dark Spots

I took the 2 photos of my left arm, by holding the camera with my right hand. They are not very sharp because I took them at close range and the cheap camera couldn't perform well.

I can assure you that my right arm is also clear of dark spots or age spots.

Remember, I am past 60. So the photos have nothing to shout about, except no more dark spots or age spots!!

Pineapple is a good source of manganese as well as Vitamin C and Vitamin B1. One cup of pineapple a day will fulfill 73% of your body requirement of manganese which helps strengthen bones and tissues. Pineapple contains a mixture of enzymes called bromelain which helps the rapid healing of wounds and also helps reduce swelling caused by arthritis, gout, and sore throat . Bromelian has been found to help suppress coughs and loosen mucus. More important is that bromelain shrinks tumors and also prevents cancer from developing.

Apart from bromelain, present in pineapple are other micro-nutrients that experts believe can protect against cancer. These micro-nutrients also break up blood-clots and is beneficial to the heart. Pineapple juice also kills intestinal worms and relieves intestinal disorders. It also stimulates the kidneys and helps remove toxic elements in the body. Due to its high vitamin C content, pineapple is good for oral health as well. Pineapple aids in maintaining good eye health and helps to protect against age-related eye problems.
